WE HAVE MOVED
Thank you, thank you, thank you to our staff, customers, friends and their spouses who helped in any way with our move. We certainly couldn't have done it without your assistance. It was amazing how quickly we got it completed - and in the pouring rain. Your generosity of time and talents are very much appreciated. THANK YOU!!!
Our new address is 240 Gill Street, Alcoa TN 37701; less than 1/2 mile from our former location.
Our hours are: 9:00 - 5:00 every day (Monday thru Saturday). Our last Monday to be open until 8:00 PM is November 26.
QUILT MARKET UPDATE
On December 13 (Thursday) we will have our annual update to discuss new techniques, methods, and new products learned at Quilt Market in Houston. The event will be held from 3-5:00 and again 6-8:00. You can register online or at the store. The cost is free - and there will be door prizes.
Thanks to your generosity we presented 356 pillowcases to Blount Family Promise and other 356 pillowcases to Blount Count Foster Parent Association during November. Both representatives said THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all of our customers who made and donated pillowcases. They were very overwhelmed with your generosity and these will be appreciated by their clients. We also thank you for all of your generosity in making the pillowcases.
NOVEMBER & DECEMBER FEATURE -- Our feature for the remainder of November and the entire month of December is Christmas fabric. All Christmas fabric will be 20% off. There is still time for those last minute holiday gifts or things to decorate your own home (i.e. placemats, table toppers/runners, etc.). Or, time to shop for Christmas fabric to get a start on next year's holiday projects.
If you are working on items for Laurie to quilt after the holidays, we ask that you not bring them to the store until after December 20 since she is not accepting any more quilts until January.
WOOLY BLOCK ADVENTURE
For those of you who like to work with wool, Wooly Block Adventure started October 1. This is similar to Row by Row but uses wool. There are about 60 stores in the United States and Canada who participate in this project; 2 stores in Tennessee. You can stop in our store and get a free pattern or purchase a kit; you can also purchase the pattern and kit on our website. Wooly Block Adventure will be held until November 30 then it goes in hibernation until February 1. Stop in the store for more information or check out the Wooly Block Adventure website at Row by Row Experience.
CLASSES -- We still have a few classes on the schedule; however, since we know how busy everyone is during November and December due to the holidays, we will be scheduling a lot of these after January. However, we have a few classes scheduled for some last minute gifts and/or items to decorate your own home. Check out our classes on the website or the store for more information.
UPCOMING QUILT SHOWS AND EVENTS IN THE AREA:
March 20-23, 2019 - A Mountain Quiltfest - 25th Silver Anniversary in Pigeon Forge
TENNESSEE BASKETMAKERS ASSOCIATION - ONGOING ANGEL BASKET PROJECT:
Angel Basket Project started in 2013 at Vanderbilt University. Their bereavement program at the Children's Hospital is looking for Moses-type baskets that could be given to families to safely transport their infants to funeral homes. Each basket will need a small blanket (30x30 to 32x32 inches) to swaddle the baby in. We will also need a pillow for each basket (11 x 14 inches) oval or rectangle. Please consider making a blanket and/or pillow to put in the basket. These can be knitted, crochet, sewn, etc. Colors should be very muted. Ideally, pillows should be made of a soft, satin like material, in white or cream. If you have any questions, please contact Sandy Miller at email@example.com or 865-223-8278.
HANDICAP RAMP - We have a portable handicap ramp for people who need assistance into our store. If you are in need of this, please call ahead or have someone come in and let us know.
